We are excited to propose downtown route optimizations

Effective Date: November 3, 2019

To meet our objectives of improved efficiency, performance, and headways, we are making changes to better utilize LeeTran’s resources. We will be simplifying routes 10, 20, and 100 to reduce headways and improve operator and rider experience navigating the system. These adjustments minimize coverage loss while introducing new service.

We are excited to propose year round service on the Blue Line Trolley in downtown Fort Myers. The trolleys will also travel on route 10, allowing direct service from downtown to Edison Mall. This will allow Route 20 to provide higher frequency to communities to the east of downtown. Route 100 will take a more direct path to Rosa Parks while routes 15 and 20 focus on local service. These are the next steps in making LeeTran a more efficient and customer-centric service.


Route 10

Route 10 will no longer travel out to Michigan Ave. and Marsh Ave. It will travel between Rosa Parks Transportation Center and Edison Mall in its normal configuration. The only exception is that it will travel along Fowler St. and MLK Jr. Blvd. instead of Edison Ave. and Jackson St. near downtown.

Route 20

Route 20 will now cover the former eastern portion of Route 10 starting at Rosa Parks and down to Edison Ave. at Veronica Shoemaker Blvd. and MLK Jr. Blvd. Route 20 will follow its regular path to Palm Beach Blvd. It will no longer travel downtown.

Route 100

Route 100 will no longer deviate down to Michigan Ave. and Marsh Ave. Instead it will travel on Veronica Shoemaker Blvd. between MLK Jr. Blvd. and Palm Beach Blvd.

Route 500 will now operate year round with higher frequency during season.
